NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2016

NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Residential substance abuse and mental health facilities provide medical services, room, board, supervision and counselling services to patients suffering from mental illness or substance abuse.

Substance abuse refers to patterned use of a drug which is harmful when consumed in large quantities. Uncontrolled use of these harmful drugs leads to many health issues including psychological and behavioural problems and even medication reactions. Substance abuse poses a threat to the well-being of drug users as well as their families. The healthcare centers which provide exclusive healthcare for these patients are called substance abuse health facilities.

Mental disorders refer to a wide range of mental health conditions that affect the mood, thinking and behaviour of an individual. There are more than 200 types of mental disorders. Based on the level of severity these disorders can be classified as mild, moderate and severe. Treatment approaches for mental health patients are based on level of severity of the type of disorder and the individual illness. Treatment may be provided in out-patient mental health facilities for less severe illness or in residential mental health facilities where the condition and its effects are severe.

The Americas was the largest geographic market in the residential substance abuse and mental health facilities market in 2015, accounting for $XX billion or XX% of the global market. This was due to chaotic domestic environment, poor social skills, growing awareness about mental health illness and increasing access to mental health and substance abuse services. Europe was the second largest geographic market, accounting for $XX billion or XX% of the global market. Asia was the third largest geographic market, accounting for $XX billion or XX% of the global market.

Global per capita average residential substance abuse and mental health facilities expenditure grew from $XX in 2011 to $XX in 2015 at a CAGR of XX% and is expected to grow to $XX in 2019 at a CAGR of XX%. Per capita average residential substance abuse and mental health facilities is increasing because of increase in healthcare spending in emerging markets and higher incidence of mental illness, substance abuse and alcohol disorders.
